Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories/Story

The game takes place in Liberty City, 1998, before the events of Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto taking place in 2000 and 2001. You start out playing as Toni Cipriani, a made man and Capo for the Leone Mafia family last seen in Grand Theft Auto III, returns to the city after a period of "laying low", having killed a "made man" before to the approval of don Salvatore Leone. Upon arrival, however, he finds that the Leones have moved on with business and Toni's position as Capo was seized by another member. Starting again as a low ranking goon of Salvatore's mob, Toni must once again work his way back up to his former position as the second-in-command to the don. You, the player, will assume the role of Tony Cipriani upon arrival in Liberty City.
